Cambridge Touring Productions started life as Cambridge Touring Theatre. A group of friends keen to further their skills and passion of accessible theatre for the whole family.
The team have written five original shows based on well-loved family classic stories. These shows have toured extensively throughout the UK and appeared in many festivals include Latitude and the Edinburgh Fringe.
In 2017 Cambridge Touring Productions was born, working with many of the leading touring companies in the East Anglia region. Over recent years our attention has focused on supporting other touring theatre companies to bring their shows to some of the most lovely outdoor venues in East Anglia. We are keen to continue working in this way for the foreseeable future so please do get in touch if you have a show to offer or a space in which we can set up and entertain! We have the experience, expertise and knowledge to make a wonderful and memorable occasion for you
